NATURE & GASTRONOMY

  

 

 

  Asian Tapir

 

Thailand

The Asian Tapir is dark grey to black with grayish white markings, that extends from its shoulders to its rump, a pattern that functions as camouflage.

 

When lying down it may be mistaken by predators for a large rock rather than prey. Also the tips of its ears are rimmed with white. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
